22.11.09 – Thailand. Have you ever travelled to Thailand and Bangkok? Would you like to travel there? Please see below as well.

Mediterranean countries for “The Observer” and more

Italian… “Agriturismi” in Italy? Here there is an article by The Observer about Castellabate, the Cilento national park not very far from Naples, fried fresh anchovies with bread, olives and tomatoes and linguine with baby squid and broad beans. Should I write more about “agriturismi”? I am really addressing this question to tourists, and not to tourist operators…

Cancun, Mexico, Central America and Asia. Have you ever been to Cancun in Mexico or Thailand? And maybe from Sweden? Which are the flights? And where have you been?

Sitges. September in Spain from the UK? In Sitges? Do you know salsa music? Or maybe do you like to eat in tapas restaurants?

Again Italy. Do you like whales or dolphins in the Ligurian Sea or maybe Basilicata with southern Apennines and “bread from bakeries in Matera, wine from Aglianico and cheese from the mountains”? And do you like this list by The Observer?

An island. Sardinia‘s Supramonte Mountains and plateau, Sorgente Su Gologone and the Lanaittu Valley or a Nuraghic village. Any help needed by the Association for Tourist Services, Culture and Environment in Orgosolo or the Agrituristica Guthiddai? Would you like to taste boiled sheep, roasted pork, bread and salami or cheese, local wine and olive oil?

Going on with food, would you feel like eating almonds, carob, olive, pistachio and walnut trees? In Can Marti – Ibiza, Spain, with Swiss owners… Furthermore there is “homemade bread with local jam and honey”…

Spain and France. And what about Cortes de la Frontera in Spain and a lot of place in France like Béziers, the Languedoc, the Canal du Midi and Carcassonne? Or the vineyards of Minervois, Ventenac and the Cathar castle at Lastours? A wind farm there…

Doubles from €110 including breakfast.

Ssese’s Islands. Do you know where the tropical Ssese’s Islands are?

The Nile. And do you know what mzungu means, who Idi Amin is and where Jinja and the Bujagali Falls are? Clues for my question are the Nile and the lakes Nyinambuga and Victoria… Last, but not least, have you ever been to the Ssese Islands Beach Hotel, the Haven, the Ndali Lodge and to the Gately on Nile? Have you ever met South Africans or Americans?

Aircraft. You can fly to Entebbe from Brussels with Brussels Airlines on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10.40 to 19.35; from Amsterdam and from London Heathrow to Entebbe  with KLM. Among the other national parks in Uganda there would be the Bwindi Impenetrable national park in the south-west, Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth national parks and “the Foreign Office advises against travel to the Karamoja region, in the north-east”.

Difficult situation for Less tourists in Ireland with visitors from Britain down by 22.8 per cent or from other parts of Europe by 20 per cent. Sad situation, but let’s hope…

Southern Italy. What follows is not an ad and I know my readers should be very intelligent. So I add this link to a project for 122 two and three bed villas and townhouses near Sciacca, Sicily, Italy.

Asia, Vermont, the UK and cartoons

calogeromira.wordpress.come-mail

Mail Sorting, Bureau of Red Tape and Work Cartoons by Reader’s Digest, Dan Reynolds and Dave Carpenter. Other cartoons by Eckstein, Le Lievre, Schwadron and Harris and a video album of mine about this magazine.

Douglas Alexander, Ed Balls, Mike Smithson and SNP in an article by Nick Cohen for the Observer, but, above all, two sentences like

In foreign policy, too few people again realise that the Liberal Democrats are not true internationalists but a Fortress Europe party indifferent to the needs of those suffering beyond the EU’s walls. Thus they opposed the second Iraq war for good reasons, but offered no support to Iraqi liberals and democrats hoping for something better after 30 years of unremitting tyranny.

But also in this article Evan Harris and Norman Lamb are quoted as well as Vince Cable and the Institute for Fiscal Studies.

Some constituencies and the general election. Candidates in Dagenham and Rainham, Bethnal Green and Bow, Poplar and Limehouse, Stoke-on-Trent Central and Lancashire West.

But also in Aberavon (victory for Hywel Francis), Aberdeen South (victory for Anne Begg) and North (victory for Frank Doran), Aberdeenshire West and Kincardine (victory for Robert Smith), Belfast South, Birmingham Hall Green, Bournemouth West, Bristol North West, Cardiff South and Penarth, Coventry North West, Cornwall South East, Croydon North, Derby South, Devon East, Dorset South, Ealing North, Edinburgh South, Exeter, Glasgow North, Greenwich and Woolwich, Guildford, Hammersmith, Hull East, Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey, Ipswich, Isle of Wight, Kensington, Leeds East, Leicester South, Liverpool Walton, Luton North, Manchester Central, Newcastle upon Tyne Central, Oxford East, Nottingham East, Reading East, Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough, Slough, Somerset North, Southampton Itchen, Stratford-on-Avon, Tottenham, Wimbledon and Windsor.

Below something else about Iraq or something else that might not be of interest for you.

Iraq, London and Khyam Allami. BBC Asian Network and 6 Music. Radio 3’s World Routes with Lucy Duran and Khyam Allami, a London based musician of Iraqi descent.

Afghanistan and Europe. Afghanistan and a video by the European Commission.

31.03.10 – Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars and Vermont. The Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars will be on tour on April 7 at the Higher Ground in Burlington, United States.

Refugees and The Refugee Day. Have you taken part today – or, let’s write in another way, will you take part – to the World Refugee Day? Here’s an article by Deutsche Welle with particulars about the organisation refunited.org, Claus-Ulrich Proelss, the head of the non-government organization Cologne Refugee Council, and Ulrich Austermuehle from the Red Cross tracing service in Bonn.

The Huffington Post, RI (Refugees International), Iraq and the “aftermath” of the Civil War. The author, Luis Carlos Montalván, writes: “It looks as though the US response to the Iraqi refugee problem has come up wanting, on every front”.

– Survivors of war and the Reader’s Digest.

An excerpt from this text is also what I write now: “But Lincoln was struck down the following month and the Bureau was officially abolished in 1872. Consequently, from 1877 to 1965, States and localities enacted “Jim Crow laws” thereby stifling Lincoln’s vision of assisting the refugees (mostly former slaves). It would take 99 years for the US Civil Rights Act of 1964 to renew what Lincoln began”. Have a nice reading…

A refugee and a famous actress

Is effective the work of a goodwill ambassador? Anyway, there would be areas who are now out of bounds for aid troops in Afghanistan…

Fire, migrants and a protest. Fire in the island of Lampedusa after a protest by some illegal immigrants.

The strong determination not to return home. The fire took place at an Italian refugee centre in an island located between the rest of Sicily – near the town of Agrigento – and the North African coasts of  Libya.

An anthologyGo home: 12 moving stories – about migration with works by “young comic artists from Europe and Asia”.
